WHERE THE ANCIENT & CONTEMPORARY COMBINE

This ancient and rich city-museum is preserved intact on a peninsula separated from the mainland by a narrow isthmus. Buildings from all stages of its existence are evident, from Roman and medieval fortress walls, to 18th and 19th century wooden houses. It boasts an impressive number and variety of churches, constructed during Byzantine, Bulgarian, and Ottoman reigns, representing the rich architectural heritage of the Eastern Orthodox world.

Contemporary Nessebar is a major seaside resort, with wide, golden beaches and lots of sun. Popular activities include boating, fishing, shopping, and relaxing at one of the many bars and restaurants tucked away in the narrow cobblestone streets.
